African Quilt

This is a cool quilt!! My customer spent time in Africa working at a missions. As she worked there many of the women gave her cloth. it was used as dresses, wraps, and head gear. When she got home she made quilts!!

It is kind of a loosely woven fabric, so we used a black batting. 

And did very simple quilting, so that the fabric designs would take first place.

I had a hard time choosing my favorite one, so ..... I didn't!!  I decided I loved them all!

I love them all too and love the simple quilt pattern. Gotta do that for my next quilt! Maybe even today :)
